It has always been my resolution to never make resolutions.
I think that I probably would never follow through with anything that I resolved, so why bother? However, this year, I'm making a resolution - and I'm going to do my very best to stick with it.
My resolution - to be in God's Word EVERY SINGLE day. I heard the collective gasp. There are some of you who I know are so faithful to read God's Word every day. And then there are others who, like me, miss a day or two or ten. This year. I'm not missing.
I found one of those "read-the-Bible-through-in-a-year" things on Biblegateway. I'm going to attempt it, although my resolution isn't to necessarily read the entire Bible through in a year....my resolution is to just be in His Word every day. Wherever He takes me...that's where I'm going to read.
Anybody else up for the challenge? I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that He will bless my reading and "show me great and mighty things which I know not!" (That's in there somewhere...)
Or perhaps you have made another resolution.... please feel free to share!
that he shall write for himself a copy of this law in a book,
from the one before the priests, the Levites.
And it shall be with him,
and he shall read it all the days of his life,
that he may learn to fear the LORD his God
and be careful to observe all the words of this law
and these statutes,
that his heart may not be lifted above his brethren,
that he may not turn aside from the commandment
to the right hand or to the left,
and that he may prolong his days in his kingdom,
he and his children in the midst of Israel.
